Wedding Inspired Wednesday {No. 6} - Stationary

         It has come to the point in our wedding planning process where stationary has become my main focus. I am looking for ways to display the seating chart, assign tables, invitations, response cards, maps, etc. There are so many aspects of a wedding that involve stationary!

{1} Here is a cute DIY embossing idea from Lovely Little Details:
The photo is from the blog, which comes with a DIY video tutorial for a menu - but you could add this little twist onto just about any of your wedding stationary!
{2} Another DIY trick from Lovely Little Details: DIY Calligraphy!
Such a simple idea! She gives plenty of ideas on other places to use it as well! Example: black paper with a white pen to get that chalkboard look that is so popular right now! :-) Can't wait to give this one a try myself - I will let you know how it turns out hehe
{3} Bachelorette Party Fun! Here is a fun game for the bachelorette party:
The photo above is an example from the game - from the authors blog page of course - it's basically a cute quiz regarding the Brides relationship to the Groom - The groom was asked a series of questions and the bridesmaids made these cute cards that were then used to Quiz the Bride - Every wrong answer = alcoholic beverage
{4} Name cards for seating:
Courtesy of The Knot - I love this idea for a twist on traditional, plain jane name cards - especially since our wedding is rustic! You could easily combine this idea with the DIY calligraphy video posted above as well. :-)
{5} Speaking of seating - how about arranging the seating chart? All that re-arranging, last minute cancellations, last minute add ons, new found "enemies" or family feuds? Well fear not! Here is a wonderful, FLEXIBLE seating chart arrangement idea for all those last minute changes!
Courtesy of Martha Stewart Weddings - here is a fun flexible idea! Adhesive strips with the names on them - as suggested on the site, you could even create color-coded groups: bride's family, groom's family, friends, kids, etc.  
{6} Last, but not least: Thank you cards - now by no means do I think these should substitute a good old fashion "thank you card" personalized in the mail, but if you opt to not do a menu, or just want each guest to have a sweet sentiment to read, these two are good starters!

Hope you have found some inspiring ideas for your wedding stationary! Be sure to check back in a couple of weeks - March 17th I am taking a fabulous "Blueprint of a Wedding Invitation" class with bridesmaids, Audrey & Megan, Mother-in-law, Blondie, & "Aunt", Terri! Hopefully, I can post as many tips regarding DIY wedding invites as possible, not to mention helpful tips for any sort of wedding/event stationary!
Hope you have a fabulous Wedding Inspired Hump Day! XoXo
